De-escalation workshop

In April, Pacific NW Experience hosted Officer James Stegemeyer from the Portland Police Bureau's Behavioral Health Unit for an informative workshop on ways to de-escalate social situations that front-liners and guests can encounter. This workshop was so well done we may schedule another one later this year.
